are you recieving emails from pf?
I suppose you mean members with aol accounts who have email notifications turned on?
I have in the past, but not recently.
I turned off the email notification, and I usually keep my PM storage open.
We planning to cancel AOL soon! :grumpy: Should be fun.
:O Astronuc has aol?!?!?!
But but... hes normally so impossibly smart
Not on AOL, but still no emails from PF
FYI, I haven't received email notifications in months. (Yes, "instant notification" is still turned on; No, I don't have AOL.) I no longer get any email notifications: not for new posts in subscribed threads nor for reported posts in the forums I moderate.
Am I the only one not getting them? (I thought this was a bug that came with the last upgrade.)
In any case, I've learned to live without them just fine. (Since I'm on PF so much anyway, clicking on subscribed threads works just fine.)
I still get them
I have no AOL account but haven't received an email notification for new PMs either, although it is checked in my user-options. It works on other vBulletin forums I visit. The confirmation email after I registered myself here at PF was delivered though.
I have a question regarding "Email username" and "Email server" under the profile. They are referring to an "email gateway page". What is that supposed to do?
I haven't been getting the reported posts e-mails in moths.
:rofl: We've had AOL since about '96, back when it was reasonably better than it is now. Then we had dial up. The wife like it (it's her account), so we kept it - until it crashed on her machine and she lost some data. Hence the change.
I still have to try to recover her data.
I heard recently of a class-action lawsuit against AOL.
I can't wait for my wife to try to cancel AOL. If they give us a hard time, I will be most certainly contacting the state Attorney General.
I thought they came in packets
:rofl: I'm not doing too well today.
Dear god, you use AOL? Are you MAD?????! :surprised :surprised :surprised
When we switched to Verizon a while back, the guy on the phone was like, "for only $5.00 a month you can still use AIM and your AOL email account"......I was like, or I can use aim for free, and a free email account. No thanks.
Is AOL the only ISP that you get emails for penis enlargement and breast enhancement by the dozens?
I know an elderly couple that uses AOL and gets these emails all the time. I know that they are not going to these types of websites, which only means AOL sells out their members email account addresses.....bastards
I would throw the case out. I think at this point, if you have AOL, any computer problems should be your own fault no matter whos fault it actually is :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
I was ready to give it up along time ago.
No, the spam filter removes most before they get to the email storage on the AOL server.
Likely they have an earlier/older version of AOL. I don't think it's necessarily that AOL gives out members information, certainly not without permission. I get spammed at work, but then my work email goes out to a lot of other people. If other people are not careful, one's email address can be scattered all over the net. Then there are tracking cookies, like Bluestreak, Tribalfusion, Casalmedia, . . . . That's why anti-spyware - anti-adware is necessary.
I wonder if the AOL filter is catching PF emails?
Haven't you read the horror stories about cancelling an AOL account?!:surprised
back in the '90's when we had(and cancelled, because it sucked) AOL, it took at least an hour on the phone
Nah, both my hotmail and gmail accounts get those too. Of course, both have fairly good spam filters, so they all wind up in the junk mailboxes.
I'm guessing that's the point of this thread, even though it wasn't explained. AOL has a nasty habit of blocking emails from entire ISPs for no particular reason. All of our university's emails were being filtered from AOL for a while. Once they found out, it took about 3 days to straighten it out.
Yeah, I am looking forward to the phone call. Maybe I'll record it for quality assurance. :rofl:
You want to hear something odd, back in the day I made an msn account, before they switched over to hotmail....so my email ends in msn.com and not hotmail.com
Since I created that account, I have *NEVER* once gotten a junk email, *EVER.* I never even touched a filter setting.
I am not getting any emails from PF either. I don't have aol though. I use Comcast and ATT but neither of them get PF mail.
I'm not sure if something has been changed, but I received an email notification for a new PM a day ago for the first time (no aol-account).
